Guelph (12-27-1-6) currently sit seventh place in the Midwestern standings, now one point back of Brantford (13-26-2-4). Sixth place would likely mean a playoff matchup against third place Waterloo Siskins (54 points) while finishing seventh would currently equal a first round matchup against second place Stratford Warriors (70 points).
